As a consequence of the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the International Training Technology Exhibition and Conference (IT²EC) scheduled for September at ExCeL London will no longer take place in 2020.
This is principally due to the continuing prohibitions and advisories against international travel put into effect by governments around the world and the introduction of COVID-19 government regulations and public health directives. The next edition of IT²EC will be staged 25-27 May 2021 in Seville.
As Europe’s primary event for the military training and simulation sector, IT²EC is truly global in its make-up, with more than 100 speakers, 80% of exhibitors and two-thirds of visitors based outside the host nation. With such an international audience, the restrictions - which in the UK currently include a 14-day quarantine - present extremely significant challenges for the majority of the IT²EC audience in planning their attendance at this year’s event.
As such, the decision has been made following consultation with key stakeholders, including the National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA), not to stage IT²EC in 2020.
